Defender Monaco suspended for five matches after wild kick
AS Monaco should the five matches to do without defender Benjamin Mendy. He received from the disciplinary committee of the French football association a long suspension for a violation of Lyon midfielder Corentin Tolisso.
Mendy gave Sunday during the lost match at home against Olympique Lyon (1-3) opponent Corentin Tolisso from behind a shovel. The ball was at that time not at all in the neighborhood.
Mendy responded angrily after a clash with Tolisso. The defender of Monaco loved equally in and kicked the midfielder from Lyon then back down. It came to him on a red card.
“The referee was totally right,” said coach Leonardo Jardim of Monaco. “Benjamin must have to keep a cool head if he is on a high level wants to play football.”
Monaco is on the second place in the French league, two points behind Nice. The suspended Mendy may only have a month of football.
